Bushwackers

I was just speaking to a Sales rep about children and the sleepless nights involved in having a new born. He recommended marijuana as a good way to get to sleep. Hmm.

It's Just the 'internet' Now

Wired News has an article titled "It's Just the 'internet' Now". They've changed their style guide to use: internet, web and net; Internet, Web and Net are out.

Suddenly I find myself in a quandry. Do I follow the Wired News style guide? Do I stick with what I know? Do I do a survey of media style guides to see which approach is more widespread?

I'll start by asking for your opinion. (Feel free to comment as well.)
Poll #337465 Internet or internet?

Should I use a capital 'I' ("Internet"), or a lowercase 'i' ("internet")?

Spell it as: internet (lowercase)
2(50.0%)
Spell it as: Internet (capitalised)
2(50.0%)
